(LEHIGHTON, Pa. 10-15-15) Mahoning Valley Speedway will conclude the 2015 season with its final event slated for Saturday, October 24, featuring Dirt Mods, Street Stocks, Hobby Stocks, All Star Slingshots, the ATQMRA and the Vintage Division of the ATQMRA.
The speedway is also proud to announce that Gary Lee’s Brown Daub KIA will sponsor the day of racing.
Located at 3600 William Penn Highway in Easton, Gary Lee’s Brown Daub KIA played a leading role in the 2015 season at Mahoning Valley as each week one lucky fan and driver were presented with $50 cash through the “Weekly Wheel Spin.”
Gary Lee’s Brown Daub KIA also was the primary sponsor on the No. 5 championship Dirt Modified of Ricky Yetter.
The popular dealership likewise played a major part in this year’s Fan Appreciation Night and during the year provided Mahoning Valley with the “Official Pace Car” a KIA Optima. Fans were also able to take advantage of a special $500 off coupon from the program book from their best negotiated deal.
Seeing how well the relationship has been, Gary Lee is going above and beyond for the season closer. One lucky fan and driver from either the Dirt Mods, Street Stocks or Hobby Stocks will receive $500.
The final “Weekly Wheel Spin” will be used to award the lucky recipient. For the fans all they need to do is purchase a copy of the Thunder in the Valley program book and check out the Gary Lee’s Brown Daub ad page. There is a stamped number on the page and if their number is called they will be given the chance to win the $500. There will be six lucky numbers called.
As for the racers they will have a wheel spin take place during the drivers meeting. If the wheel stops on the designated class then one lucky finisher from that feature will get a shot at the $500.
Gary Lee will also have additional giveaways including an I-pad. There will be a tent set-up near the main ticket window for fans to register to receive prizes and giveaways.
At intermission Gary Lee will make several laps with his 1991 custom Mustang Fox body while members of his team shoot t-shirts into the stands. He will also serve as official starter for the feature events.
Prior to the start of the races there will be a special releasing of purple and yellow balloons to honor the memory of Jennifer Flannigan Kutz.
The Dirt Mods will battle for 60 laps and $1500 to win. The Street Stocks will race in a 40-lap feature with $800 to win plus it will be the deciding race of the American Rental Street Stock Gamblers Series. Hobby Stocks will cover a distance of 25 laps and be awarded $300 for the victor.
The All-Star Slingshots will hit the pavement in a 25 lap main that is part of the 2015 National Tour with major title implications on the line.
A champion of the American Three Quarter Midget Racing Association will be crowned at the end of their 25-lapper.
At intermission the Vintage Division of the ATQMRA will conduct an exhibition race.
